I do not think they pop up very often but after days and months of running a
orphans can be alive. The way I would handle it is write a check that runs
over Nagios (NRPE) and looks for Hadoop task processes using ps, that are
older then a certain age such as 1 day or 1 week etc. Then you can decide if
want nagios to terminate these orphans or do it by hand.
